As waterways are plentiful in Washington, I was able to cross some of the waterways on ferries. As I remember, Will & I used 3 ferries: 1. Port Angeles, WA – Victoria, BC. 2. Coupeville, WA – Port Townsend, WA 3. Lummi Island Ferry One of them took us from Port Angeles, WA to Victoria, BC Canada. They varied in price, all of them being fairly expensive to transport an automobile. We didn’t take the car to Canada, though. It…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m not used to being a tourist. Usually, when I go somewhere, I don’t frequent the insides of museums, fairs, the normal tourist things. I like to get up early, go to the shore, perhaps the forest, set up my camera and have a good time exploring, pondering shots, listening, enjoying the morning. The same applies for the evenings. In the in-between times, I might go to see a movie, read, watch TV a little bit, not really caring about…

We figured that we might as well look around have see what was in The Empress Hotel. We had decided that it might be fun to have High Tea at the…

They say: You never get a second chance to make a first impression; logically, I can say that this is true. However, sometimes things deserve a second look, a second impression. “When we make art, we try to make something that we never leave behind. That comic book or sea shell you picked up on your vacation last year, you can leave that shit behind when you move. But a diary, a diary is something you hang on to. It’s…

More mirrorless news, you say?

More mirror-less cameras, you say? When I first saw this article, my initial thought was … so what?! All of their ranger finders are mirror-less. What’s the big deal? I suppose that the big deal is that this is a mirror-less Leica camera that is not a ranger finder. As a matter of fact, it doesn’t even have a viewfinder, only rear LCD viewfinder, which knocks it out of contention for me, right away … not that I am even…
